How much does a licensed electrician cost per hour?

An electrician’s average hourly rate is $75, but this price can range from $45-$120, depending on the complexity of the job and the materials needed. The total cost will also vary depending on how long your job takes and if the electrician charges for travel time.

Your location may also be a factor in determining the hourly rate of performing electrical work on your home. To get an accurate estimate of how much electrical work will cost you, contact the best electricians near you to receive free quotes.

Go online to find the best electricians near you. After researching and finding a few pros who seem qualified for your job, go ahead and request a quote to find out how much those electricians will charge you.

How do I hire an electrician?

Go online to find a list of the best electricians in your area. View each individual electrician’s profile and learn more about their services and expertise. Then, read reviews from satisfied customers as well as any issues they may have encountered. This will help you find one with the right experience to work safely in your home.

You should also spend some time researching what qualifications and credentials they have. You might find information about their license on their profile, or you might need to check your local and state government’s website to verify their license. 

Once you’ve done a bit of research, ask to receive free estimates from several electricians in your area. Ultimately, hire the most qualified electrician who can complete your project at a reasonable price.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation with an electrician during the COVID-19 pandemic, ensure that you are performing as much of the process digitally as possible. The best way to begin is by conducting an online search for local electricians. Ask if they can perform consultations over a phone or video call to comply with social distancing mandates. You should also discuss a strategy for how to complete the project during social distancing or whether the project should be completed once the pandemic has ended.

Is it worth it to hire an electrician?

Yes, it's usually worth it to hire an electrician instead of doing the work yourself.

Electrical work can be very dangerous. The pros spend many years working and studying before they become licensed and certified. That knowledge and training can help them work safely and perform the job without harming themselves or your home. 

Even a small wiring repair job can be unsafe if not done correctly. Hiring someone that has specialized training on how to do each specific job is the safest choice.

What questions should I ask an electrician?

Here are a few questions you should ask any electrician you’re considering hiring:

  • Are you licensed or certified? A professional electrician should have this information ready and up to date. 
  • Do you have any references? Ask for references to learn about their work history from previous customers. You may be able to look online at reviews, but it’s also good to speak to someone to find out their experience with this electrician. 
  • What types of services do you offer? Whether you need repairs or installation services, make sure the electrician can perform the work you need.
  • How long will the job take? This will help you set expectations and rearrange your schedule (if needed).
  • Can you send me free estimates? Request a job quote or estimate. This will help with comparing different electricians. The numbers may vary, but be sure to factor in the experience of each person, as well as the scope of electrical work you’re asking about.

How can I find out if an electrician is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Guidelines are available from both local and federal government agencies to clarify which services qualify as essential during the COVID-19 pandemic. To determine whether an electrician is considered an essential service provider in your area, check your city or state’s government websites.

For federal guidelines, consult CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 page, which outlines 16 critical infrastructure sectors. But not that some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire an electrician when social distancing?

If you decide to hire an electrician, choose virtual platforms for consultations like calling or video chats. Avoid any physical contact with the electrician, wave instead of shaking hands, stay 6 feet away, sanitize shared surfaces and use digital payment apps instead of cash.

Can I use digital payments to pay for electrical and wiring repair?

These days, many electricians will accept digital payments for electrical work and wiring repair instead of traditional cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic has helped speed up the adoption of platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Square Cash, Venmo, Google Pay and others as a means of complying with social distancing guidelines.

As you search for electricians online, ask whether they’ll accept digital payment and set up a strategy for staying safe.

I needed to get my mother’s office safe electric outlets. She is a very independent 89 year old. The problem is that I am in Georgia and I need to get help at a distance. The electrician came on time to my mother’s home and fixed the outlets. He even organized and tied the cables for all of her gadgets. I appreciate the warm service from the technician. My mom enjoyed having him there to help her out. I would recommend them to anyone that needs a trustworthy electrician. Will provide photos later.

I wish I could also pick value and punctuality but I could only pick 3. These guys were amazing! They explained the scope of work clearly, were on time, flexible and the quality of work was exceptional. Super nice guys to have in the house and incredibly professional. Will not be using another electrician!

Gilbert was on time, very knowledgeable, personable and did an excellent job. His experience and expertise was much appreciated. I was so happy he was able to complete my projects before the holidays. I would highly recommend him for any of your electrician needs. I will definitely use him for any future electrical projects.

The Electrician i TRIED to hire was not consistent with his communication. I attempted to schedule an appointment with him and he called me AFTER the appointment time to say he'd been held up. I then asked if he could come later the same day; I'm still waiting for a response. He quoted a price of $130- to repair a porch light.

I recently had electrical work completed by Groppi Electric. Their electrician was punctual, arriving at our agreed upon time. After assessing my electrical issue corrective action was completed over the span of two addition visits. Personnel were very knowledgeable and professional. I’m scheduling additional projects with this company in the near future; I’d highly recommend their services.

I must start by saying I am very pleased with the work Erik Gordon (E.R.I.A) completed for me and the outstanding service he provided me. Here’s the story. AT&T installed cable service at my home. While doing so the installer hit an electrical wire going into my kitchen and knocked out power to several plugs. AT&T had no problems agreeing to pay for the damages however; it was my responsibility to find an electrician and provide the necessary documentation to support the damage claim. This incident happened the week before Thanksgiving 2015. I had a tough time finding an electrician. I actually contacted several prior to finding Erik. No one was interested in the job either because of the upcoming holiday season or the AT&T third party damage claim process I had to go through to get the job paid for. When I found Erik, he was a Godsend. Erik not only gave me a fair estimate (which I forwarded to AT&T’s damage claims department), he also stuck by my side throughout the entire process. Erik spoke to the claims department on my behalf, explaining the work that needed to be done and why. He went way beyond my expectations and I can’t say enough about how grateful I am to him and his crew. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend Erik to anyone that is looking for a reliable, professional and hardworking electrician.

Jerry is incredibly knowledgeable, efficient, and fairly priced. He was able to install my 3-way and single pole smart switches in under 25 minutes! I've never seen an electrician work so quickly. He is very skilled at his trade. He's also professional, polite, respectful, honest, and punctual. I'm so thankful to have discovered him on Thumbtack. Highly recommend!

Professional, prompt, polite, perfect. Showed up on time. Did the work needed. Made helpful suggestions. Knew the building codes. Did not go over estimate. Pricing fair and reasonable for work performed. Did a professional job. No shortcuts or sloppy work. Did things the right way. He brought the electrical up to code and redid work from another electrician. Very satisfied.

Electrician responded in a timely fashion, followed up when he said he would and arrived when he said he would. When onsite, he checked out the job, gave me a price we agreed on and got to work. He completed the work, tested is, and cleaned up after himself. I was very pleased and would definitely use him again.

This was my first time using this platform. I needed an electrical outlet added into a room. I hired Shawn and he was on time. He was also extremely knowledgeable and professional. I asked him a few questions before he arrived. He was fast to respond and answered all of my questions completely. After he was done with the job he even cleaned up behind himself. I will definitely HIGHLY RECOMMEND this electrician to anyone!! Thank you again for providing such high quality of customer service. Working with you was very painless!

If you're reading these reviews to decide on the best electrician in your area, you can stop now. Kokhanevich Electric is THE ONE!! Andrey was extremely responsive, and kept me in the loop on when he arrived. He was very personable, took the time to answer all my questions and concerns, and installed my new motion light with such ease. He knows his stuff and is truly a master of his craft! Finally, he understood my Covid concerns and wore a mask while on the premises - that really meant a lot and I appreciate it. If you like supporting local business like I do, stop thinking about it and hire him immediately - you will not be disappointed! Thanks again.
